Grenada, Diving and Covid-19

First, I want to say I hope everyone is well and staying safe during this crisis. We can only hope the world gets back to "normal" (whatever that may mean going forward) in the somewhat near future. God bless all the front line workers for putting their lives on the line every day. Such an unprecedented and scary thing we are living through. I hope you and your family get through this safely.

In case you are interested in our story, here it is. As many of you know, I was in Grenada for the winter. We were saving our diving for when diver friends of ours came down and we also planned to do some at the end of the trip (so we had something to look forward to). Diving is expensive there so we only planned on a few days.

Well our friends came down and for the first time ever, they decided they wanted to relax and not dive. Which was no problem, we still had a few weeks left.

Then Covid-19 hit. While they were still diving at that point, I was hesitant because we were using rental equipment (since we were only diving a few days, we didn't bring our equipment with us). Then flights started getting canceled. Long story short, woke my husband up one morning at 6:30 am and told him to get up and pack, we were leaving that afternoon - 2 weeks earlier than planned. We were on the last flight to the U.S. (they started having some repatriation flights this week).

We were just thankful to be able to get out and home safely. Our 2 week quarantine is now over and we are both fine.

While diving is necessarily off the agenda for now (at least for me), it can't take our daydreams away as we are sheltering in place. Positive thoughts never hurt anyone :).

Please stay safe and well. Love to you all.

Back in Grenada

I know I have been a bit quiet around here lately. Well one reason is that we have been back in Grenada for almost 2 months now. I am finding it hard to get motivated here :).

I continue to be in love with this island and its' people. Such a beautiful spot.

We have had alot of people come down this year too (it will be a total of 15!) so we have been a bit busy. In a good way though :).

While we have been enjoying the beach and the water, we haven't dove yet. Another group of friends is coming down next week and they are divers so we will be going under soon! Also, diving is pretty expensive here (unlike our last trip in November to Roatan) so that puts a limit on the amount of diving we do here. All is good though.

I hope this finds you well and you are able to get some diving and/or dive trips in this winter. I would love to hear about it, so please be in touch. Until next time. Happy Diving!
